India vs Australia: Virat Kohli Padded Up and Ready To Bat on Day 3

Virat Kohli Padded Up 3rd Day

Indian cricket fans got a massive boost when they saw Virat Kohli ready in his white cricket kit and padded up when shown on the big TV screens. Clearly visible in the dressing room, Kohli was in his kit. In last two days he was either bare chested with an ice pack applied on his right shoulder or wearing a casual tee highlighting he wasn’t ready to take the field just yet.

To give the Indian cricket fans positive vibes, Virat Kohli did net practice in the morning facing some throwdowns including facing left arm spin – to counter Steve O’Keefe. From last two days, it was unclear despite being given the all-clear as per the BCCI statement.

Virat and Umesh

But on Friday, Umesh Yadav had made in clear in his statement that said that Kohli is good to bat and that looks to be the case. He said, “Bandage will obviously remain after an injury. But I think he’s fit to play. The way he’s practicing at the nets it seems he’s all set to come back.”

Virat Kohli Shoulder Injury

Virat Kohli was injured in 40th over on day one at Ranchi Test, after that Kohli could not field after landing awkwardly on his right shoulder while trying to save a boundary in the post-lunch session. Impact was very huge even he had difficulty in standing up and was grimacing in pain. He had to be rushed out of the field immediately.
